Yeah i would start there, also the Throttle position sensor, bit I had an 88 Trans-am GTA with the 350 TPI and had a clogged fuel filter and that's what solved the problem.

also take a look at your fuel rials they tend to clogged up.

also.. is the exhaust running freely? a collapsed catalytic converter can impede airflow & exhaust.


Did you stay stock replacement parts of stepped up after market parts. Maybe you need to re-program your computer?
